schwarzenegger talked about health care and energy and the environment and the fiscal cliff. then he talked about political reform. unless we deal with politically these other issues, so critically important -- they are not republican or democrat, they are american issues, problems that need to be solved. we need to solve them. the political dialogue is a real problem. the coarseness -- it has been aggravated by the media. you do not turn on the tv in order to be informed or educated. you normally turn on to your favorite station to have your views reinforced. i think about the declaration of independence. we ought to have a recent -- decent respect for the opinions of mankind. we have lost a decent respect that both sides should give to one another. if you take a look of the declaration of independence, the first amendment, speech, assembly, etc. -- they wanted a marketplace of ideas. is about tolerating the other person's point of view. it does not mean you have to agree with it. it means to tolerate it. i think executive experience, having been in congress for 12 years, i give you speeches, bu

not think we should make a -- divert attention to try to confront it in an external environment. continuing to engage, having areas of cooperation in energy, the development of a massive nuclear civil energy programs. we are already cooperating with the chinese. keep our markets open. but do not create a more hostile environment that is essential. is is important we keep a balance in the region. there is a line between balancing provocation and we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> i was surprised to hear you say that the comments made by both candidates, you used the term deplorable. i know you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? abbey said i find your comments deplorable? -- have you said i find your comments deplorable? [laughter] >> i see these advertisements for the candidates are debating with each other on how to deal with the cheating of china. both used the word cheat. it may be that in china they do not understand and i am bothered by the fact that appealing to china -- it does not affect my feeling of the canada.

environment, even 90 minutes with a skilled moderator, allow them to go at each other, steering the debate, that is one thing. but if it is complete free-for- all, i think the campaign would never risk it. >> in the first debate, i learned afterward, nixon was one of the smartest politicians ever to be vice president, and of course later, president. and he was the most gracious. that did not come across in the debate. why was that? no one seems to have asked that question. was he over-awed by his wealth, his tan? that is why what i want to know. why nixon did not bring that out as much as he did in the first one, in the next three. >> if i could, on the fact checking, one thing that i do that is helpful is to go to multiple fact checking organizations. go to several and get the consensus about what people have to say about the candidate's statements. >> we will go to a question from the studio. >> i have a question for professor mcilwain. i have been intrigued by your academic work, looking at how race influences the way candidates communicate with different audiences. for the first time,

didn't wait for washington nor international treaty and environment or anything like this. we just moved forward. i remember washington was never that enthusiastic about infrastructure. you know how much we are falling behind in infrastructure nationwide compared to the rest of the world. but we in california we said yes to infrastructure. and now we can see construction in schools and roads and affordable housing and other projects all over the state of california. washington said no to stem cell research. imagine, we said yes. and we invested $3 billion. as a matter of fact, right here at u.s.c. we have one of the great centers for staple-cell research, and they are drawing money for those $3 billion for their center. washington said no to our landmark climb change law. million solar roofs, list goes on and on. we said yes, yes and yes. and we moved forward. some of the most powerful solutions come from local government and also grass roots. people power. not from washington or paris or moscow or beijing. finally, i learned quickly that a post partisan way of governing is the mos

and will be good for our economy and is good for national security and it is good for our environment. [applause] we doubled the amount of renewable energy we generate from sources like wind and solar here in nevada and all across the country. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and solar panels and long-lasting batteries. today the united states of america is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have got a choice. we can reverse this progress like governor romney wants to do, or we can build on it. unlike my opponent, i am not going to let the oil companies write our energy plan. i'm not going to let oil companies collect corporate welfare from our taxpayers. we have a better plan where we invest in wind and solar and farmers and scientists who are harnessing new biofuels to power our cars, where construction workers are building homes and factories that weighs less energy, and we are investing to get out 100-year supply of natural gas. we can create hundreds of thousands of jobs in nevada and all across the country, and cut oil import

700,000 jobs. i do not want to kill jobs in this environment. >> let him answer the taxes thing for a moment. >> we had this discussion before. but in order to reduce the deficit, there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. >> gov. romney has ruled out revenue. >> absolutely. the revenue i get is by more people working and getting higher pay and pay more taxes. that is how we balance the budget. the idea of putting more people out of work, you will never get there. you never balance the budget by raising taxes. spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. now spending 42% of our economy of government. i want to go down the plan of growth that puts a americans to work with more money coming in because they are working. >> in order to get the job done, it has to be balanced. >> we have to take a balanced, responsible approach. this is not just when it comes to individual taxes. let's talk about corporate taxes. i have identified areas where we can make a change that i believe would help the economy. the oil industry gets $4 billion a year in corporate welfare. they did

in this country. we are facing problems with the environment. i think what we'll be doing over the next several weeks, and i'm absolutely delighted the league is sponsoring these debates and we are able to now speak to the american public and address the issues in a way such as this. i think you are going to see a change in those polls. >> vice president bush, you have one minute to rebuttal. >> well, i was glad to get that vote of confidence from mrs. ferraro in my economic judgment. let me make a statement on the economy. the other day she was a -- in a plant, and she said, why are so many of you voting for the reagan-bush ticket? and there was a long deathly silence. and she said, come on, we delivered. that's the problem. i'm not blaming her except the liberal voting record in the house. they delivered. they delivered 21.5% interest rates. they delivered what they called "malaise." they delivered interest rates that were right off the charts. they delivered take home pay checks that were shrinking. and we delivered optimism. people are going back to work, six million of them, and 300,000 jo

place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to boast -- to vice- president alkyl and joe -- al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points. -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more debt -- depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the sage, right down three points they want to make. when you are w

, the environment in d.c. will be more supportive of a comprehensive immigration reform. of course, we have different views on the subject. i agree with the president's decision to exercise prosecutorial discretion. i also agree what he did for the dreamers. i hope we are able to pass the dream at. >> you are opposed? >> yes. >> but when you look at what is going on out there, the president is getting knocked on both sides. some are knocking him because they say that he deported more folks -- this administration, they say, has deported more focused than any other. >> well, the bush administration. >> we know that, since 2004,he number of border patrol agents have doubled in this country and that, president obama, he called for an increase to avert 21,000 border patrol agents. since 2007, revenue going toward border security has increased 55%. and we also see, for instance, in terms of mexicans coming to the united states, that is at net zero right now. to suggest that somehow our borders are not secure, if what that means is are they as secure as we would want them to be? we could always ma
